how do you like your miracles ?
grandiose ? sweeping ? brazen ?
secret ? hushed ? hidden away ?
noisy, with puffs of smoke and flashes of light ?
or earthly, humble, even sensual ?
i’ll tell you: i prefer the latter. i prefer the miracles you can touch and taste and get inside of
over the spectacular ones you only hear about.
and yesterday, i came upon a miracle-maker.
he’s friendly, and passionate, and down to earth.
in fact, he spends most of his time in the earth, bringing life to wonderful,
and long-missed aromas and flavors.
he’s got lavender, citronella, and 3 types of mint, and more and more and more.
i stood in his field, jaw hanging, enjoying an olfactory adventure i haven’t known for years as he handed me leaf after leaf to inhale.
this is my kind of miracle, this is my brand of joy.
what’s yours ?
